A Council Decision of 16 November 1992 (92/547/Euratom) extends the status of Kernkraftwerk Lingen GmbH as a joint undertaking. This status was first established in 1964 for a period of 25 years in order to construct, equip and operate a nuclear power station with a capacity of the order of 250 MWe at Darme, Kreis Lingen in Lower Saxony. The joint undertaking has since 1981 put into operation a decommissioning procedure up to the safe enclosure stage, and is proposing to implement a monitoring and study programme concerning the behaviour of decommissioned installations over the period for which nuclear installations have to be kept within a safe enclosure. To this end Kernkraftwerk Lingen GmbH requested that its status be extended for a period of ten years. The Council grants the extension, considering that the experience acquired under the programme will be of great use to nuclear power-station operators and will assume special importance in the development of nuclear energy power stations and hence in the development of nuclear energy in general.
